The 2024A Gemini Observatory Call for Proposals has been released. Proposals are being accepted for observations from 1 February to 31 July 2024. Gemini North and Gemini South are expected to have 161 and 151 nights available for science, respectively. A new version of the Phase I Tool (PIT) has been released to support proposal submissions. Please note that all Gemini proposals requesting time from the United States, Canada, Brazil or Argentina must be anonymized. This applies to programs requesting time only from each of those partners, and to joint programs requesting time from multiple participants which include them. The submission deadline ranges from 30 September to 3 October 2023 as outlined here.
Simultaneously, Gemini is accepting proposals for shared-risk observations in December with the Gemini High-Resolution Optical Spectrograph (GHOST) as part of the Gemini Fast Turnaround (FT) Program. Details on this call are given in the Fast Turnaround call for proposals. PIs can also propose for GHOST during the 2024A semester via the normal semester call for proposals. A tutorial video with instructions for using the PIT and integration time calculators for GHOST observations is available here. Please note that different PIT versions are required for the shared-risk and semester call for proposals, as detailed in the call for proposals text.
